We treat our employees fairly and with respect. We promote diversity in the workplace and strive to provide an environment that is free from harassment, violence and intimidation.
Our employment policies adhere to all applicable domestic laws and are, to the extent reasonable, consistent with internationally accepted labour standards. This includes the right to freedom of association and collective bargaining, non-discrimination, and the banning of forced labour and under-age workers.
We pay wages and benefits, including overtime (when applicable), which satisfy, at a minimum, national legal standards or local industry benchmarks. Employees receive full details regarding their pay and deductions for taxes, benefits, etc., as well as written contracts or work documents.
The use of misleading or fraudulent practices to recruit employees (such as failing to disclose key terms and conditions of employment) is prohibited, as is any attempt to retain or deny employees access to their identity or immigration documents. We use transparent, clearly defined and clearly communicated measures to calculate performance-based pay. Working hours never exceed the national legal standards or industry benchmarks.
We strive to protect our people and assets, and to provide a secure environment in which our businesses can operate. Our security policies, systems, guidelines and practices, to the extent reasonable, are consistent with international standards, including the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights, and the laws of the jurisdictions where we operate. When operating in Developing Countries with limited regulation on Security, we commit to the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights.
